If you are an aggressive trail rider or someone who loves gravity and looking for serious knee protection then look no further. iXS Dagger knee guards are just the dead-on knee protection for you. The Next Level Series Dagger knee guards are ideal for downhill and trail riding without compromising on comfort side.
The overall design and fitting of iXS Dagger knee guards is pretty interesting and full of smart features. The Squeezebox joint between knee and shin provides protection while sustaining flexibility and mobility while the extended shin padding protects you from rocks and those brutal pedal assaults. What we really liked about the design was that they even cover the lower thigh area… Which means more protection when your luck fails. This feature also prevents them to slip down while riding or while crashing. To make it better, A hard plastic cup on the outer side of the Dagger guards your knee from rocks and those hard crash on gravel etc. while the soft padding and layers on the inside works perfectly and is not harsh on your skin. The pre-moulded shin extension is great but we wish if it could be a little longer.
After almost 3 months of abuse the iXS Dagger knee guards don’t show any wear signs. The stitching is strong and still holding well and the Velcro straps are still problem free. When you don’t wish to use them, they can be fitted very easily in hydration bag.
After using the Dagger NLS series knee guards we understood why its favourite knee protection for riders like Darren Berrecloth. Another great product by iXS.
